Rabi Pirzada’s magnum opus, ‘Shor Sharaba’, which was expected to release on Eid last year and was then postponed till July 21st owing to excessive competition in the industry, has finally graced the cinemas on April 27th.
Produced by Sohail Khan and directed by the Indian director, Hasnain Hyderabadwala, the film had gained a lot of fame even before it had entered its post-production phase. After all, it was a joint production of Indian and Pakistani artists.
Celeb Dhaba decided to get in touch with the leading lady of the film, Rabi Pirzada, to find out how the actor feels about the release of her debut film.
Pirzada, who had earlier gained recognition because of her melodious voice, revealed that she had no idea she will become a part of the cast of ‘Shor Sharaba’. She was only interested in signing for the film but the makers had different plans and decided to cast her which was obviously very delightful for her.
When asked why the actor refused to sing for the film after being cast as its heroine, Pirzada says that an individual should deal with only one thing at a time. “You end up confusing your audience when you also sing for the film in which you are acting. Ali Zafar, Sonu Nigam, even Kishore Kumar sang and act for the films they worked in and they were never appreciated. In fact, Noor Jehan had to say goodbye to acting because of her singing career.”
As for her expectations form the film, Pirzada says that they are quite high as the film is really good for which all the credit goes to Indian filmmakers. She says that unlike most Pakistani films, Shor Sharaba doesn’t project itself as a drama. However, the beautiful actor’s only gripe is that no such efforts have been made for the publicity of the film, which makes all the difference in making a film a hit or a miss. “Shor Sharaba is a big movie and it deserved a lot more.”
Shor Sharaba has both old and new faces along with seasoned artists like Mustafa Qureshi, Meera and Bahar Begum, as well as young ones such as Rabi Pirzada and Mebal Khan. Furthermore, Indian choreographer Reshma Khan has done its choreography.
